Alyce feel­ing at home in Paris

Isis Town and Country - - News -

“IT’S great to be back in Paris,” Alyce Bri­er­ley said.

She feels com­pletely at home but guilty for leav­ing fam­ily.

“It feels the last few months in Aus­tralia were a dream and I never ac­tu­ally left Paris,” she said.

When­ever there are sirens, it is gutwrench­ing for the lo­cals.

“I think we are all an­tic­i­pat­ing more at­tacks. It’s very sur­real,” Ms Bri­er­ley said.

While get­ting gro­ceries from the shop­ping cen­tre down­stairs, there was a bomb threat.

“It was a bit of a re­al­ity shock. I tried to re­main calm. I guess this is our re­al­ity now,” she said.

The army, po­lice and se­cu­rity per­son­nel are every­where, check­ing bags and mon­i­tor­ing ev­ery­one in the shops, mar­kets, metro and every­where.

“It feels very safe though,” she said.
